How To Architecture Competition
Welcome to The Future of Architecture, Created by The Inspired Minds and Voices of The Now.
The How To Architecture! competition challenged architecture students from around the world to design a Beacon which connects architecture to the state of cultural interactions today. Designed for a hypothetical festival in New York City, each student’s Beacon design offered it’s own voice about architecture’s role, relevance, and impact in our daily lives. Drawing both international and national entries, the competition reveals architecture’s capacity to imagine and cultivate intimacy, while coalescing omnipresent cultures in our contemporary age. How does pop culture--the listicle, the headline, the meme, or the snapshot—come alive through architecture?
How To Architecture! is a design competition which invites students to reflect on contemporary culture and to do it with architecture. Leafing through headlines, lists, captions, zooming in and out of feeds, bold fonts, and articles made of images: we participate in the age of the listicle. Culture flashes before us—an extension of ourselves: the superabundant reel. As the cycle of consumption whirs on, architecture still stands. What does architecture say; how does it feed you? Tell us what you think! Tell us How To Architecture!
